Upon its release, the track debuted at #1 on the iTunes Philippines all-genre chart, another record for Julie’s book, with her previous releases “Regrets,” “Breakthrough” album and it’s singles (“Tayong Dalawa” and “Nothing Left”) sharing the same success. The two artists were also featured as the cover of Spotify’s New Music Friday Philippines playlist.
Produced and written by OPM rock icon Rico Blanco, the track brings Julie into the shoes of the “third party” in someone else’s relationship, as it explores themes of forbidden love and longing for someone you can’t have. Aside from the unique point of view the singer-songwriter puts herself in for the first time, the music it is set to brings forth a unique mix of musical styles — featuring the Pinoy jukebox style of hugot, and putting some modern synth elements as well, resulting into a fresh yet familiar sound audiences would relate to.
Coming from a year of breakthroughs and heartaches, singer-songwriter Julie Anne San Jose returns with a brand new single that signifies a new chapter in her life.
Julie’s first album under Universal Records, “Breakthrough” broke the boundaries, with her change of sound and approach to her music. All of its singles (Nothing Left, Tayong Dalawa, Down For Me) and the album itself reached the top of the iTunes charts during their first day of release, with the song “Your Song (My One and Only)” also reaching 9 million streams and counting on Spotify.
This year, Julie is set to continue her stride with the release of her newest composition “Regrets.” The emotional song is a reflection of her experiences from the past year, may it be about her career or personal life.
Minutes after its release, the new single already reached the top spot on the iTunes Philippines All Genre and Pop Charts, continuing her streak of #1 hit singles, joining the likes of K-Pop groups BTS and Blackpink on top of the charts.
Talking about the song, Gloc says “Goodbye song ko ito sa rap na ginawan ko ng kwento na parang relationship sa isang babae (this is my goodbye song to rap, which I likened to being in a relationship).” Though this is in reference to thoughts about staying in the rap scene, there seems to be no stopping the rap icon from putting out fresh music that still resonates with long-time fans and new fans alike.
Maleta is released as a single ahead of Gloc-9’s upcoming EP which is expected later this year. The track will be included along with “Lagi,” a collaboration with fast-rising Pinoy rap artist Al James, which has now garnered over 4.2 million views on YouTube. Aside from this, Gloc also penned and appeared on the track “Pamaypay” with R&B singer and Tawag ng Tanghalan-alum JKris, and has had various collaborations with Shanti Dope, which clearly indicates his support in grooming the next big acts in OPM and the Hip-Hop scene in the country.

In November 2018, Julie Anne had an Opportunity to be part of Gary Valencianos Advocacy Album, Awit at Laro to promote Filipino games and songs through art and music. She is the only Gma Artist that is included in the album, she performed the song Pitik Bulag Composed by Jungee Marcelo.
Awit at Laro is made up of 20 native songs like Magtanim Ay Di Biro or Sitsiritsit Alibangbang and songs about our childhood games like sipa or patintero. Almost a hundred artists got together to do the songs and recordings while others contributed artworks about the subjects. The result is one wonderful book with pages of song lyrics and incredibly impressive artworks.
Proceeds from the album will go toward funding children’s causes via UNICEF, where Gary V serves as a national ambassador, the Tukod Foundation, Shining Light Foundation and towards the improvement of Museo Pambata’s exhibits and facilities.

Prior to its release, the album’s featured singles ‘Nothing Left‘, her rendition of the Parokya ni Edgar classic ‘Your Song (My One and Only),’ her original song ‘Tayong Dalawa‘ and ‘Down for Me (featuring Fern.)’ all topped various charts as well.

Asia’s Pop Sweetheart Julie Anne San Jose has released a new album under GMA Records entitled, Chasing The Light. Even before the release of the album, her carrier single and one of several she penned in the album, “Naririnig Mo Ba”, has already topped the iTunes charts after its digital release in June. The song is about faith in love and the hope of feeling in love again, which anyone can relate to.
According to the Kapuso singer-actress, her album is closely similar to her recently released EP, Forever.
“Chasing The Light is more mature in the way na nag-evolve ‘yung genre. It’s different, kasi yung nauna kong albums with GMA Records, parang medyo ballad. I think my fans and I are on the same page when it comes to the kind of music I would make. I think they will like the album just how they liked my EPs,” Julie Anne relates.
Her latest album consists of several original songs and a revival, with Julie Anne’s writing the lyrics for two songs. She also collaborated with international rapper C-Tru, who has high regard for the Kapuso star’s talent. “As a Filipino-American with deep roots in the Philippines, it is an honor to collaborate with talented local artists such as Julie Anne. It’s amazing to be able to connect the Filipino culture here in the U.S. with my kababayan back home through the universal language of music,” C-Tru claims.
Julie Anne San Jose is set to host the second season of GMA-7’s singing competition, The Clash, along with Rayver Cruz.
They are stepping into the role of the season’s Clash Masters, the post vacated by former Kapuso singer Regine Velasquez, who transferred to ABS-CBN in October 2018.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the September 10 media conference of The Clash season 2 at Hive Hotel, Julie Anne was asked how she feels about taking over the role of Regine.
She answered with a smile, “I don’t think I have to fill anyone’s shoes because ever since, idol ko na talaga si Ate Reg.
“Simula bata pa lang ako, pinapanuod ko na yung mga movies niya, mga kanta niya, nasa tape pa yon, lahat ng kanta niya, CDs niya, tapes niya.
“And she’s one of the reasons why naging successful talaga ang season one ng The Clash.
“So, this season two naman, we want to give it our best shot din para maibigay sa tao kung ano yung ine-expect din nila from us, and at the same time, we also want to enjoy what we’re doing.
“Kasi since season two ito, may bagong flavor, of course, tapos kaming dalawa ni Rayver ang host, hati kami doon sa ‘The Clash: Isa Laban Sa Lahat!’ na tagline.”
Julie Anne is aware that viewers of The Clash from season one might compare her and Rayver with Regine.
For this reason, the GMA-7 singer/actress/TV host makes sure that viewers will see a different hosting style from her and Rayver.
Julie Anne said, “I think, oo, kasi hindi po talaga dapat namin gayahin because ate is ate, Regine is Regine, and sa kanya lang yun.
“Sa kanya lang yung attack niya doon sa tagline, meron din kami sariling attack.
“Kasi, kapag sinasabi namin yung tagline, hati kami. At saka since it’s season two, kapag dalawa kami magbabato ng linya, mas may impact o mas intense.
“Kung si ate, intense na, hindi naman mas but may sarili din kaming intensity na intense din.”
The new season of The Clash is set to air on September 21, after Pepito Manaloto and before Daddy’s Girl on GMA-7’s Saturday prime-time block.
Even though Julie Anne did not expect that she would be hosting The Clash, she admitted that she prayed for her to be chosen.
It finally dawned on her that she would be chosen as the host when she was assigned to helm Studio 7’s segment titled “Duet With Me,” a mini-singing contest where the winners would become part of The Clash’s finalists.
“Hindi ko na-feel, I didn’t really realize na parang, okay, merong ‘Duet With Me.’
“Then, parang napag-isip-isip ko na, after mga a few weeks, na parang uy, tuluy-tuloy na siya, every week, meron na kaming segment sa Studio 7 na ‘Duet With Me,’ then I got the news na I’m hosting The Clash.”
How did management tell her about the news?
She recalls with a laugh, “It’s very casual. Sobrang casual lang talaga like dumaan ako ng Artist Center, ‘Julie, ikaw host ng The Clash, ha.’ Wala talaga!
“Pero after that, sinabihan ako, tinext ako, I got a call.
“Thank You, Lord. Thank You po talaga.
“Kasi before, noong nabalitaan ko na magkakaroon ng The Clash season two, nagpe-pray din naman ako, nagpe-pray talaga ako.
“Siguro, ang sarap sa feeling na mapasama sa The Clash kasi may bago na namang aspriing singers na madi-discover, di ba? So we’re actually building a new breed of singers.”
Apart from Julie Anne and Rayver, Rita Daniela and Ken Chan are also part of The Clash as journey hosts.
Julie said that they are all enjoying the experience of hosting a competition, especially for her and Rita, who are both products of Popstar Kids.
“Kasi ako galing din ako ng singing comeptition ni Rita and alam namin yung feeling na nasa isang competition ka.
“So alam namin kung ano yung napi-feel, there are times na mapi-feel namin na hindi enough yung ginawa ko, and there are times na you did a great job today.
“But, at the end of the day, we just want everyone to enjoy, that’s like our main goal and to show our audience, our viewers na ang daming magagaling na Pilipino, sobrang daming magagaling at ito produkto ito ng The Clash.”
